Launched in 1962 on the basis of a Fiat 1500 C, the Ghia 1500 Coupe was a nice two seater with reasonable performance figures.
Ghia were successful with their 1500 GT, which was a 2+2 coupe based on the versatile Fiat 1500 chassis. This car was comparable with the Karmann Ghia of Volkswagen: it looked fast and sporting with clean lines and thanks to its slippery shape a top speed of 170 kph was possible. Built using a monocoque construction, Ghia did some beautiful work with the Fiat raw materials, shortening the rear overhang, while lengthening the front for true sports-car proportions. The 1500 GT was a fairly small car at 4,170
